"If pieces broke off, and were attracted by gravity to recombine, the overall shape would tend toward spherical."

And `Oumuamua is not at all spherical, and its gravity is far weaker than Earth's. The pieces being dragged toward the center might be keeping their non-spherical shapes. I'll agree a tractor is not a likely shape, but maybe a pincushion or a starfish. If it can be shaped like a cigar, like most images show, then maybe it can be shaped like a spoon. Or a fork.

I'll admit, I haven't done the math on it.
